Reforming Education | Privatisation | Libertarianism watch

    • Thread Starter

    I think we should draw from two models: Sweden's Tuition Vouchers, and California's University System.

    Our universities are already privatised, and no-one would advocate socialising our universities, would they?

    I think our schools should be built and maintained by 'university' trusts; we already have British universities building and maintaining universities in foreign countries, and I think the same should be done in the UK.

    Socialism and Libertarian
    Sweden has system of tuition vouchers, offering every child free education.

    I think we should have Tuition Points Vouchers.

    Each child would have 1000 points, and would be able to choose courses wherever the child wants as long has the child has enough points.
    For example:
    LSE: A-Level Economics (500 Points)
    LSE: A-Level Simple Maths (100 Points)
    UCL: A-Level Science (200 Points)
    ICL: A-Level English (100 Points)
    Tate Modern: Art (50 Points)
    Fitness First: Chess (50 Points)

    TOTAL: 1000 Points Used
    In the future, people with enough disposable income might be asked to pay a certain percentage of their Tuition Points Voucher; say 1 Point = £20, a family who has an excess amount of money might be asked to pay for 200 points, or £4000 - an extremely wealthy family would have to pay for all 1000 points, or £20000.

    We are maintaining the Socialised Saftey Net, yet introducing the libertarian measures giving us amazing universities and freedom.

    There's nothing wrong with the current education system.
